Cheesecake Fruit Dip
This five ingredient Cheesecake Fruit Dip is simple to make and perfect for a party, snack, or dessert! It’s easy to keep all the ingredients on hand so when you’re craving something sweet or have friends dropping by, you can whip this up in no time. The cream cheese in this recipe gives this dip a nice richness and more authentic flavor, while the lemon adds brightness and the vanilla gives a nice warmth. I used a Greek yogurt brand known for being very thick this time so my dip was a bit thicker, whereas if you use a thinner yogurt yours may be creamier. It’s equally delicious both ways, so use whatever type you have on hand and I’m sure this Cheesecake Fruit Dip be a hit either way. I don’t usually have an issue finding the sugar free fat free Cheesecake flavor of Jell-O pudding mix (I get it at Wegmans), but if you can’t track it down locally you can always order it on Amazon!
I love serving this Cheesecake Fruit Dip with strawberries, pineapple spears, apples or banana slices, but it’s also pretty great right off the spoon. Not only does it taste decadent and flavorful, but a 1/3 cup serving is just 85 calories or 2 WW Freestyle SmartPoints!
